Taking part in the Dragon Boat Race Doncaster and beating our target of raising £500 for Bluebell Wood Hospice!

A P&W team lead by the MD Anthony Wheatley took part in the Doncaster Dragonboat Race 15th July to raise money for the very worthy Bluebell Wood Hospice.
The team and supporters on the day comprised of P&W employees, family members and friends.
It was a dismal start to the day (weather wise) but the team embraced the challenge and achieved their objectives:
NOT GET WET (for the most part anyway)
The team worked hard and the results were better than anticipated
Race 1 - 2nd 76.31 seconds
Race 2 - 2nd 67.71 seconds
Race 3 - 2nd 70.25 seconds
Overall we came 12th out of 28 teams (just missing out on a place in the semi-finals)  (1st place time 67.46 seconds)  even the sun came out later on in the day.
We consider this to be a fantastic achievement for our first time taking part in this event.
We have already booked our place in the event next year, our target shall be to make the semi-finals.
Most importantly we smashed our target of raising £500 for Bluebell Wood (achieved £761.50 + gift)
A big THANK YOU to our team, our supporters and our sponsors.
